  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1.  Section  4403 of the education law is amended by adding a
new subdivision 22 to read as follows:
  22. TO PROVIDE ANY PARENT  OR  PERSON  IN  PARENTAL  RELATION  WITH  A

SECTION FORTY-FOUR HUNDRED ONE OF THIS ARTICLE, ALL  EVALUATIONS,  INDI-
VIDUALIZED  EDUCATION  PROGRAMS,  AND RELATED DOCUMENTS NECESSARY TO THE
IMPLEMENTATION OF SUCH  INDIVIDUALIZED  EDUCATION  PROGRAMS,  TRANSLATED
INTO  THEIR PRIMARY LANGUAGE AT THE REQUEST OF SUCH PARENT, OR PERSON IN
PARENTAL RELATION, TO THE EXTENT FEASIBLE.  SUCH  PARENT  OR  PERSON  IN
PARENTAL  RELATION  MUST  COMPLETE  AND SUBMIT A FORM TO THE DEPARTMENT,
PROVIDED BY THE  DEPARTMENT,  WHICH  SHALL  RELEASE  SUCH  DOCUMENTS  IN
COMPLIANCE  WITH  APPLICABLE  STATE  AND  FEDERAL  PRIVACY  LAWS FOR THE
PURPOSES OF TRANSLATIONS. SUCH FORMS SHALL BE ISSUED BY  THE  DEPARTMENT

MENT'S WEBSITE.  TRANSLATION OF DOCUMENTS SHALL NOT IMPEDE THE IMPLEMEN-
TATION  OF  A  STUDENT'S  INDIVIDUALIZED  EDUCATION  PROGRAM  OR   OTHER

DEPARTMENT TO PROVIDE AN ACCURATE TRANSLATION.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
